Abstract: The Eastern Anatolia Observatory (Dogu Anadolu Gözlemevi - DAG) is an observatory project which will have a 4-meters class telescope that will be able to make observations in the optical and infrared wavelengths in Erzurum at 3170 meters altitude. The first light of the telescope is planned to be taken in the last quarter of 2020. In order to serve the observatory, meteorological and astronomical measuring devices were installed, which are called MAM (Meteorological and Astronomical Monitoring) tower. This equipment (e.g., meteorological stations, all sky cameras, astronomical seeing measurements, etc.) produce different types of data due to their structure. The data of the equipment is recorded and served via the DAG-MAM web services. The working principles of the system are presented.
